Wouldn't you still have to route the pointer to the object you wish to right click on?

Sometimes, sometimes not.

For a "sometimes not" example, open File Explorer and then gain focus on any random file or folder you wish using only the keyboard.  Then hit SHIF + F10 or the Applications/Context Menu Key.  You'll get the context menu for that object.

It really depends on whether what you're doing to gain focus is also moving Windows system focus at the same time or not.  There are lots of times where the virtual cursor position and the actual mouse position are not one and the same, and if you need to right click on what's got focus in the virtual cursor then you need to route the mouse to the object that has screen reader focus before issuing right click.
